Lyrics/Music: © 2000 Ju Honisch
Remainder-reminder of gleaming grey power,
There they stand,
The last castles of a proud race extinct,
Of a race defunct.
Long time ago they called themselves humans
When they were still about.
Brokenly reaching towards radiant sky,
There they point,
Vindictive accusing fingers held up
To an empty sky
Where beetles fly in the blue like eagles
Soaring across the heavens.
Mandibles held erect proudly upright,
There they are,
The meek who inherit the earth
And the empty castles
That scrape the sky in left-alone wonder
After flesh and blood fell to dust.
Beauties in segmented many-legged bodies,
Here they meet
To dance in the blazing sun
After the deathblack rain,
Exploring the shadowing nooks and crannies
Of a world grating to sand.
